Ingredients You'll Need
2 cups of wheat
1 cup of poppy seeds
2/3 cup of water
1/3 cup of honey disolved in 1/2 cup of hot water

Place the wheat into a crock pot and just cover with water, turn crock to high, cook for 2 hours.
After 2 hours stir in the honey/water mixture, poppy seeds and nuts if using.
Cook another 2 hours, adding water if needed. You want the finished product to be a touch soupy.
